EDITOR'S VIEW - DAVID R. SHAH: HOW TO SPEND IT?
Now that we are looking more positively on life after Covid, the big questions in the textile industry are, firstly, whether consumers will ever prioritise fashion in the way they did before coronavirus, and, secondly, what kind of clothes they are going to buy – if and when they do?
It’s everybody’s favourite guessing game: what will happen next when the Covid crisis ends? Who will be spending? When will they be spending? Where will they be spending? And, above all, what will they be buying?
02. Contemporary Preview Autumn/Winter 22/23
Designers are being proactive and responsive. Some are speaking out for those who have been forgotten or downtrodden; some are placing their beliefs in a quiet and gentle approach that leads by kindness and integrity; others are angrily fighting and using the fashion platform to raise the tempo; a new swathe is deeply concerned with gender politics and inclusivity; and more and more key people are embracing vital eco issues.
03. Casual & Athleisure Preview Autumn/Winter 22/23
The season draws on a rekindled gratitude for nature, localism, and community. Optimism and joyfulness are a key focus, revitalised through futuristic visions that serve communities, eco-systems, and inner wellbeing. Lasting consumer anxieties are soothed through ideas that focus on comfort, protection, and the romanticism of escapism, whether in nature, or online.
